"If Dorothy were living in the 21st century, what would she wear?" was the question answered by The Wizard of Oz Ruby Slipper Collection, a creative re-interpretation of one of film's most iconic and revered symbols which has captured the hearts and imaginations of people the world over. In celebration of the 70th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz in 2009, Warner Bros. Consumer Products in partnership with CRYSTALLIZED™ — Swarovski Elements, invited the world's top shoe designers to reinterpret Dorothy's iconic Ruby Slippers for modern times.
